Hello, friends! How are things going?! I’m trying my best to survive the heat but my allergies have been getting the worst out of me! Hope you’re surviving the heat if you live in an area that’s really hot. Portable air conditioners are flying off the shelves at a lot of stores in Seattle because we’re not used to this kind of weather! I know other parts of the country is much warmer than it is here but when most people think of Seattle, they automatically assume it’s cold and rainy. Nope, no rain here and I don’t see any in our future forecast either!
Anyway, last week I mentioned that I will be working on more recipe developing this week and I am sticking to my word! When I first started my blog, I wanted to post a new recipe almost every day. What was I thinking?! Soon enough I learned how time-consuming it would be and not to also mention that I was putting way too much pressure on myself. The reason why I choose not to blog as frequently anymore is that I want to focus on publishing more quality content for you instead of rushing and posting something just for the sake of having a new post up.
This brings me to today’s featured recipe….
I actually created this cheddar turkey meatballs recipe two months ago. Yes, two months ago! The recipe turned out just the way I wanted it and it tasted great! So why didn’t I share this recipe? Well, I didn’t like how my pictures turned out. I didn’t think it represented my best work and I knew I could do better. I’ve really been trying to work on my photography and editing skills and unfortunately, I wasn’t happy with the pictures I had taken two months ago. Although blogging isn’t my full-time job, it is a part time business. Would you show up to your office looking unpresentable? Probably not. That’s the same way I feel about my blog.
This recipe is extremely quick and easy! You can eat the meatballs as an appetizer or enjoy it with your favorite marinara sauce over pasta.
Cheddar Turkey Meatballs
1 1/4 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup panko
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 minced garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix everything together thoroughly. Wet hands and form 1-inch balls and line them up on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. You should be able to make approximately 20 meatballs.
- When the oven is preheated, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- After the meatballs are fully cooked, remove from oven and let them cool before serving.
